Albatross by Fleetwood Mac

I was introduced to the blues in a very unorthodox manor. Most kids arrive on the shores by way of Muddy Waters, B.B. King, or Robert Johnson, but I stumbled upon this world of pain on the waves of Peter Green. Founding member of Fleetwood Mac and Forefather of taking the blues to new heights. As a young man with so many questions, listening to Peters aggressive yet reserved and religious approach to the blues, made me feel justified in not having the answers. You can tangibly sense that longing need for answers in Albatross. Peter Green is God.

Bye-Ya by Thelonious Monk

Jazz is a huge part of my life and musical library. I discovered in high school by listening to a Detroit jazz radio station. The host came back on after playing a song and said in a deep voice “That was Thelonious Monk”. As a 17 year old kid, the fact that where was an artist with that name just about blew my mind, like there was this whole world of “cool” out there just waiting to be discovered, I take great pride in it now. This particular song busts open with the drums playing the main theme of a song. For me, especially being a drummer, when I heard those first 10 seconds of the drums being played like a piano, I was hooked. DON’T CONFINE JAZZ TO THE ELEVATOR! STEP OUT AND GIVE IT A TASTE!

Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan

If you can sit there in your chair, or stand there in your high class oxford pressed slacks and audibly tell me that this isn’t the greatest song ever written, then you are a COMMUNIST, and you will die a tasteless communist. Nick Barone showed me this song when I was 18 years old, and since then, every single breakup, job change, hard time, and heartbreak, I put myself inside this impenetrable fortress of a song and scream out to the world “HOW DOES IT FEEL? TO BE ON YOUR OWN?”. No other song lets you give the universal middle finger like this one, and until the day another song like this is written, you communists can find me in my room letting this record spin on.

I Loved and I Lost by The Impressions

Curtis Mayfield used to be in this group with Jerry Butler. Both legends in their own realm but when they get together, it’s really out of sight! This particular track has some of the best drum fills and breaks ever recorded. The way the strings, horns, and percussion all hit together are seamless. On top of all that butter, you have Curtis singing lines like “ the whole world can know, I loved and I lost. It happens to the best”. If you’ve been rejected by a Babe/Dime/ Foxy Lady, throw this track on and prepare to feel like dynamite. Because really, who cares? It happened to Curtis Mayfield, who are you?

Cuffed by Nick Hakim

In attempts to make myself seem somewhat current, here is a track from Nick Hakims 2017 full length record ‘Green Twins’. This entire record is phenomenal and encourage you to check it out, but this particular track is in a league of its own. In the background you can find looping vocal spins and whips from synths and Rhodes sprinkled with falsetto and a simple backbeat. On the foreground stands Hakim droning on mellow dramatically about some past lover, very sexy track. Lo-Fi at its finest and has got to be one of my favorite artists currently. Check him out!

    Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get four emails with the identical comment. Is there any way you’ll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks!
